Do you need to dispose of bulky items that can't be recycled or set out with the curbside trash? The city of Aurora wants to help you "Keep Aurora Clean" with a coupon program to offset a portion of the cost of a trip to the Denver-Arapahoe Disposal Site (DADS) Landfill.
Coupons in 2019 are worth $60 each and will be available to Aurora residents only (one per household) on a first-come, first-served basis. To pick up your coupon, bring photo ID and proof of residence (mail reflecting an address in Aurora city limits) to the Aurora Municipal Center, Neighborhood Services office (fourth floor), 15151 E. Alameda Parkway, Aurora, CO 80012. Coupons will be available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday starting May 1.
City of Aurora neighborhood liaisons will also have landfill coupons available at council ward meetings starting in May. Ward meeting information can be found at AuroraGov.org/Council.
Please note, only a limited number of coupons are available, and distribution will end when all coupons have been claimed. A message will be posted at AuroraGov.org/KeepAuroraClean when all coupons have been distributed.
The coupons will be valid through Aug. 31, 2019, only at DADS Landfill, 3500 S. Gun Club Road (access off East Hampden Avenue). Depending on how much trash you bring, the pre-coupon cost for a landfill trip ranges from about $70 to $95 for a car/pickup. The balance of the landfill fee can be paid by cash, check or credit card. Hours for the landfill are 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. See the DADS Landfill website for holiday hours.
As part of the coupon program in 2019, DADS Landfill can accept appliances, tires and electronics waste for recycling for an extra charge.
